Very impressed. Clean, roomy, and quiet with great beach access and superb parking.

Hotel staff was friendly and property was clean

Great location. However, pool needs care; lots of deberé and pool was smelly.

Pleased all around

We had a great experience! The staff, cleaniliness, safety, everything was just as expected, even better.

It was terribly noisy we could hear everything in the next room. Also, the toilet flush handle was dangling. In addition it's mostly done up in very cutesy designer things that don't function well, for instance the chrome shower head that puts out a watering can area of water. There's a reason why Speakman showerheads are the gold standard. A microwave in the room that was promised would have been nice. That dated little Nespresso espresso maker was another sign that they were trying too hard to make the hotel feel chic.

This hotel is a lovely, small hotel. We counted 21 rooms. Despite the small size, it has a perfectly lovely swimming pool and even grounds with tables and chairs and a sundeck as well as a living room with couches and tv for guests to use. It’s also right across the street from the W hotel, which opens up a lot of near-by dining options. The beach is a block away and easily viewed from the sundeck. The room was tiny (we stayed in a traditional room with one king-sized bed), but very nicely done with very pretty details that made the room feel special. The reason I didn’t rate the hotel 5 stars was due to our experience as we were getting ready to check out. Check out is at 11am but when we checked in, the woman at the fro t desk told us to just call down in the morning if we need an extra hour and that it’s, “no problem at all,” if we want to stay until Noon. When we went to the front desk at 10:45am to say we needed a little more time past 11am we we’re told other people were already there waiting for our room and can we please get out as soon as possible. Three different people in fact pressured us to leave, and it wasn’t even 11am yet! All citing that people were waiting for the room. I don’t see why it’s my problem that people show up to check in at 10:45 am when check-in time isn’t until 4pm but, I doubt the staff does this to all of their customers so I don’t think this will happen to anyone else. It was probably just a fluke. Maybe the guests waiting were VIPs.

Property, staff and room were wonderful. Close to the beach and restaurants. Staff not always available.

Everything was great

Everything

Great hotel in a wonderful Ft. Lauderdale beach location. The property is small but has a nice pool and is just steps from the beach. Our room was on a corner and was very quiet/comfortable and the staff was accommodating. The parking is right in front of the hotel and very easy. My only suggestion is that the exterior of the property/landscaping could use a little sprucing up. I think some paint, new pool/outdoor furniture, and a little landscaping update could take the property to the next level.

Huge room, great staff. Super close to the beach and restaurants.

Beautiful property, facilities, and rooms. Will stay again!

Great location! Extremely clean property and room. Exceeded my expectations.

Loved the location, the property and the room itself. Very spacious!

The truth is that many essential things are missing, such as the fridge that does not serve even a water knob to cool, the water pressure in the bathroom showers is weak and desperate, the water is not constantly hot, the phone chargers do not work, the air conditioning does not cool enough, the rooms do not have any type of kitchen utensils such as plates or spoons or forks or stove and the employees have no solution, I do not recommend it in any way. La verdad es que faltan muchas cosas esenciales, como la nevera que ni siquiera sirve para enfriar una perilla de agua, la presión del agua en las duchas del baño es débil y desesperada, el agua no está constantemente caliente, los cargadores del teléfono no funcionan , el aire acondicionado no se enfría lo suficiente, las habitaciones no tienen ningún tipo de utensilios de cocina, como platos, cucharas, tenedores o estufas, y los empleados no tienen solución, no lo recomiendo de ninguna manera.

Great boutique hotel. Good beach access. Very friendly staff. Great bargain in Ft Lauderdale where many properties are either showing their age and not well maintained or over twice the price of Elita. This is a hidden gem

Phillip, thank you staying at or hotel. We are happy that your highlight of your stay was our location. We are sorry about the issue with the pool. We have a professional pool company taking care of the pool twice a week and our maintenance department daily removing leaves and debris from the pool as well. Unfortunately, we had a lot of rain and wind due to our tropical weather, however I will inform management about your issue. We thank you for your business and we look forward to your next stay. Sincerely,

Ronald, We want to thank you for your feedback and we are sorry that the hotel wasn't for you. We are not sure if you were falsely informed regarding the promised microwave , since we don't offer a microwave in our Standard King room. We wished you would have let us known about it. We could have tried if we had the availability to upgrade you with a small fee to a room that was more to your liking. We thank you for your business. Sincerely,

Tracy, Thank you so much for scoring us 4 out of 5 stars. We definitely appreciate you leaving us a feedback regarding your stay. We advise all our guest when they request a late check out , to ask the Front Desk during the morning hours if it is possible, because the reason for this is that we might not have the availability, meaning if nobody is checking in after your stay we can grant you that time. The guest after you might have requested an early check-in and are being charged an early check-in fee. We are sorry for the inconvenience that may have caused you , and we hope this didn't take away from your great stay. We thank you for your business, and we look forward to your next stay. Sincerely,
